There are a total of 7 bedrooms, 5 in the Castle and 2 in Monkton Cottage. They are all named after Scottish mythical creatures, and each has a sketch by local artist Liz Crombie-Foulds to illustrate what they are. The beds have luxuriously comfortable mattresses, and duvets and pillows are made from recycled plastic bottles to minimise our impact on the environment. Cots or extra mattresses for children can be provided on request.
